Bachelorette Party Recipes and Food

Bachelorette Party FoodWhen thinking of what you are planning for the bachelorette party, many times it will include what you will be serving as for bachelorette party food and drink. Are you planning on going out or are you having a home party?
 

Some bachelorettes even mix and have a home party to start with and then go out on the town after. If you are planning on making some food and appetizers during the party we have some excellent bachelorette party recipes for you below. Something to make sure is asking around if anyone has food allergies so you can stay away from peanuts or certain other foods that are more likely to have allergies of some of your bachelorette party guests.


Here are some excellent bachelorette recipe tips:


· Have a pot luck party where all the girls can bring their yummy favorites

· Send out ideas early so the divas have time to plan and cook their dishes

· Choose a menu that is not high in starches or you will have some tired party people

· Variety is good. To make sure all girls have something they will eat, mix up with salads, chicken/fish/meats, sandwiches, pastas, etc.

· Finger foods are fun. Get a bunch of appetizers and let bachelorettes feast


A great bachelorette party gift about cooking is called "Bedroom Desserts". We hope these tips are helpful and read below for our favorites in bachelorette party recipes:
 

Recipe Tips of the Month: Bachelorette Party Healthy Snacks

Besides the bachelorette party games that make for a memorable evening, the food you bring, especially during the hot seasons, can really make or break a last night out. It is important to give energy to the evening as well as some of us who want to watch our figures for the bridesmaid dress fitting and the bachelorette party food can be a help or hindrance to these events. Here are some excellent suggestions:

. Freeze some sweet fruit like strawberries, grapes, raspberries and blueberries which taste like candy when eating them as snacks.
. Make healthy non-carb fruit and salad plates to place in martini glasses that the bachelorettes can carry around at a party.
. Finger snacks like celery, cucumbers and carrots in low cal dip can hit the spot.
. Drink lots of water during the evening, even if you are drinking alcohol.
. If eating a heavy meal with the girls, make sure you plan out some rest time prior to getting on the dance floor but make sure there is some cardio for the evening.

6. Pipe or spoon out about a tbsp of cheesecake batter on top of each brownie batter layer
